Cool temperatures, occasional showers expected this week

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - The heat and humidity rapidly disappeared throughout Southeast Missouri and Southern Illinois, leaving us with cool temperatures and a much more pleasant forecast this week.

Meteorologist Ryan Presley with the National Weather Service in Paducah says we can expect high temperatures in the 70’s all week.

The only item of note, Presley says, is Tropical Storm Lee. The storm will begin to make its presence felt in the Midwest.

"As we head towards Wednesday, Thursday and especially late Thursday and into Friday, the remnants of Lee will begin to retrograde back to the west towards the mid-Mississippi River Valley," Presley says. "As it does so, the moisture associated will lead to an increase in cloud cover and the potential for some spotty shower activity."

Presley does not anticipate any day-long rainfall or strong storms. He adds all communities will not be affected uniformly by the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee.
